Recreating this eye look?

I saw this online and want to know if anyone knows which eyeshadow or pigment was used/can be used to get this effect? TIA62fe89127065107f74747a4f08ed6d51.jpg

Kick off the look with primed lids using an eye shadow primer of your choice.

 

The color on the inner half of the lid along with the crease can be interpreted as a duochrome shade as there's shifts of brown, purple, and even a touch of blue.

 

Kat Von D's Shade Shifter Shadows in On the Road and Love Letter would be some great example shades to use. Blend the two together, layering the purple more along the crease and using a fluffier brush to blend and soften the area of definition while the inner half of the lid can be packed more generously with the brown/purple.

Here are some swatch images of the two shades in different light so you can get the idea of the color shifts for the shades even better:

 

You can see that On the Road is definitely a more red based brown, which makes it play nice with the purple (as it plays up the red used to create purple), but that green/blue shift in it gives it that extra dimension that prevents it from being a flat brown.

 

If you find that the purple shade (Love Letter) is too rich on its own, take a cooler, grey-toned violet and dust it over to mute down the color some. Something like Bobbi Brown's eye shadow in Healther (matte medium grey violet) would be suitable:

For the color used on the outer corner, opt for a vibrant turqioise with a satin or slight sheen. Try Urban Decay's eye shadow in Peach, which is a bright shade to make outer corners pop.

Now, for that added, extra special touch of glitter, I would highly suggest checking into Lit Cosmetics. Sephora carries a few of their glitter kits, but check out their website for a super wide array of glitter and shimmers that range in size and grain to give you the option of bolder, chunkier glitter or more refined glitter.

 

Lit Cosmetics has a duochrome that has a casts of rich chocolate with a touch of green and blue:

 

I would suggest mixing that in with Peacock to give it a slightly stronger lean to a brown/blue shift rather than a brown/green shift.

 

Lit sells the bonding liquid as well as varying brushes (from flat shadow brushes to thin liner brushes) for precise application.

 

Add a flick and swish of rich, black liner from either a liquid or dense, rich cream or gel to the lashline and wing it out for a sharp wing. Stila, Smashbox, and Kat Von D make great liquid liners that are long lasting and super deep in pigment. You can also check out gels/creams from MUFE, Smashbox, Clinique, Tarte, and Bobbi Brown.

 

For the bottom lash line, for the inner half, use a coppery, bronze shade such as Urban Decay's Scorch and Deep End (a smokier turquoise) on the outer half.

You can always take a hint of shadow and smudge the liners as well to soften up their definition. Shades like Baked or Half Baked by UD would work well over Scorch while you can use Hijack (a deep teal) over Deep End.

Take a black liner and trace along the inner rim/waterline of the bottom as well as tightline the top lash line for an added intensity of black and to amp up lashes once mascara (and falsies) are applied.

 

Here's a helpful thread on detailing out lining the waterline and tightlining process:

Not quite the same, but two base shadows that would work well paired with a sparkle or pigment to get that intense shimmer would be the bareMinerals duo in the vision.

 

Actually, I have that shadow duo as well as the brown shimmer eyeshadow called Diamond Dog by Urban Decay... I have a feeling those 3 wil get you close but possibly not quite as intense. Also without the blue glitter (Diamond dog is a silver glitter with a sheer brownish base, its beautiful though).

 

I am going to try to recreate it with those shadows tomorrow!
